The Met Gala 2022 shines a light on all things shimmering and splendid; its ‘Gilded Glamour’ theme a homage to the ineffable wealth and prosperity the era of industrialisation brought America. Professional Beauty brings you the top makeup looks of the night and the products you will need to achieve them.

Certain overarching makeup themes were present at this year’s Met Gala: bold colours, stand-out eyebrows and intense eye-makeup. The white tie event is a call to the extravagance and grandeur of Gilded Age New York.
